I saw someone get some G1 pony tattoos on Instagram and it got me thinking...what would make a good pony tattoo? I love the G1 artwork and the tattoos I saw were incredibly well done, but I don’t know if I would want to get a whole pony tattooed.

Pony symbols could be a good alternative - it wouldn’t be obvious what the tattoo was relating to unless you were a collector but not would be a cute homage to pony collecting!

My favourite pony is Starglow but her symbol of a piano and candlestick doesn’t really relate to me at all (I’m not musical in the slightest), so ...I’m not sure how good a tattoo it would make. But it got me thinking - what pony symbols would work well as tattoos, and which ones wouldn’t?

Also, I would love to see any pony tattoos you have!

I would get Starshine's symbol! It really isn't obvious, and it is very pretty.
Still lusting after Sternenglanz...

My original plan was actually just to get a cutie mark tattoo! I was going to get Sparkleworks’ cutie mark on my upper arm since she was my first pony and I do love fireworks. Somehow I ended up with two full ponies though, I didn’t have that much self control to stay subtle. ;) Sparkleworks and her cutie mark are there though! i’ll try and get a good healed picture of it soon! It’s not quite as vivid as it was when it was fresh, but I still love it!

I think a lot of the G3 symbols would make neat tattoos! They’re detailed enough to be interesting on their own, even to people who don’t know anything about mlp.
I think the only symbols that wouldn’t really work as tattoos are the original 6. Especially cotton candy, a patch of white spots really wouldn’t look too good imo. :P

ETA: Here is mine! :) As you can see Sparkleworks' cutie mark is still there...just with lots and lots of other details!

And here are some pics of when it was fresh taken by the artist. It's very hard to take a picture of your own arm, so I don't feel I did it justice! :P

G3 symbols are usually good tattoos. G1 Cotton Candy? Ehh...Some of the more abstract ones might be confusing.

I think Pinkie Pie's for sure. I know the collector community's opinion of her as the annoyingly prevalent G4 toy, but she was my first G3 growing up. I have such fond memories of playing with her in her hot air balloon. And then when I got into FiM she became my favorite character. I love her bouncy hair and how fun and goofy she is. She will always be a special pony for me.
(Plus, her cutie mark is classic and cute imo. Would make a good tattoo.)

Ohhhh I didn’t even think of that! Yeah those would be weird!

I much prefer G1 symbols to G3 because they are simpler and more ‘retro’ looking but yeah...white blobs would be taking simplicity a bit too far!

Thanks Moondancer’s symbol would look really cute...as would parts of Nightglider’s. Although people might think you work for NASA XD

  • I can see a rainbow in your tears as they fall
This is my most favourite question ever! I wanted to get G4 ratity ‘s cutie mark with a needle and thread through the Diamonds with generosity written under them. Or a small pastel windwistler on my wrist or an all black kirin with a rainbow above it with the text sometimes you gotta let itrain. I know these aren’t all cutie Marks but tattoos and ponies are a match made in heaven. 😍😍😍😍

g3 or g4 star swirl would work too, quite abstract... baby ribbons n hearts, too... thinking of all the heart themed ponies XD

Of course it would be a little Baby Squirmy snail... IF I could get a tattoo.  I am allergic to the metals in the ink.

She's a TAF but probably Nightglider. Been debating on getting a tattoo related to her for awhile now

At one point I had a whole G1 Sleeve all planned out based on back card art and books.
The older I've gotten the less I'm keen on having anything branded tattooed to me.
If I were to get a symbol tattoo my top 3 G1 themed would be Masquerade, Melody or maybe speedy. G3 a few fun ones would be Anchors Away, JazzMatazz or Boogie Woogie

I did end up with a crochet tattoo though!  :biggrin: Warning this is a fresh photo I don't have a healed photo on hand. So my skin looks a bit angry!

I can't really imagine myself getting a tattoo but if I were to have one, it would probably be Wind Whistler related, or something inspired by Rescue at Midnight Castle since it had a lot of cool imagery.
